Rinvoq Oral: Uses, Side Effects, Interactions & More

Rinvoq Uses

The main use of Rinvoq is to treat adults with moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis. A doctor tends to prescribe this medication for those who have tried methotrexate but either they experienced unwanted effects or the disease did not improve.

Rheumatoid arthritis is a medical condition that causes the immune system to attack and damage joints in the body. Rinvoq can slow down the activity of the immunity, thus helping alleviate several symptoms of the disease, especially joint damage. The medication should not be used in combination with others that target the immune system. To ensure the best results, make sure to talk with your healthcare provider and take the right dosages. [2]
